Natural Neutrals

If you follow me on twitter then you might have already seen me in this dress.  I posted a photo of me wearing it in the dressing room of Urban Outfitters.  I had to immediately share my excitement of finding a super cute dress on sale for only $9.99.  Yes this dress was $9.99!  I love how it uses what most people might consider to be bland neutrals, and yet, is still a really interesting dress.  I have actually always been a big fan of grey and consider it to be one of the most interesting colors.  

Mixing neutrals is a trend I have noticed recently that I and other fashion conscious people have been sporting.  I like how this outfit has a natural vibe, without being granola.  And, my elephant necklace adds the perfect pop of color to keep things intereting.

dress: Urban Outfitters, belt: SoLa, necklace: K.Flories Antiques in Ft.Worth, boots: practically antique, purse: Michael Kors in the Domain

That purse is my new Michael Kors purse.  I notoriously do not like purses or shopping for purses.  In college I used to jam my phone into an oversized wallet so that I didn't have to carry an actual purse.  I'm not sure why I thought having to hold a wallet was more convenient than a purse, but that's how it was.  But, I have warmed up to purses more and I am surprisingly loving this MK purse.  It helps that it's cream and goes with everything.

keep austin stylish

Looooove the dress! Grey has long been my favorite color to wear, although I've lately been getting into white.
